Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body, even tougher than bone, but it can still be damaged. Impact to the teeth in an accident or sports injury can chip, crack or break teeth; even biting down on a hard item like a popcorn kernel can chip a tooth. At Hollon Dental, we offer advanced general dentistry treatments for cracked, broken and chipped tooth repair at our dental center in Mobile, AL.
A chipped tooth may not seem like a major problem, but it can put your tooth at risk. Once the enamel is chipped, the tooth is more vulnerable to decay and other damage. Chipped tooth repair can be completed in a quick office visit, restoring the appearance of the tooth and protecting it from further damage. Our dentists can use a composite filling or dental bonding to repair the chipped tooth. The resin can be color-matched to your tooth to make it look as good as new. The procedure is quick and painless, but it can prevent problems that could jeopardize your tooth.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
If you have more serious damage to a tooth like cracks or pieces that are broken off, you need an immediate tooth repair. Once the structure is compromised with a crack or missing tooth material, it is only a matter of time before decay or more substantial damage occurs. Our team at Hollon Dental can perform repairs to cracked or broken teeth to prevent further problems and save your tooth. We can use fillings, inlays/onlays or dental crowns to repair damaged teeth and restore the function and appearance of your smile. Our office offers same day CEREC dental crowns, inlays and onlays so you can have your tooth repaired in one visit.
If you chip, crack or break a tooth, do not delay in seeking treatment. At Hollon Dental, we offer emergency dentistry and same day appointments for tooth injury repair.
